UST Catholic Schools Tuition Waiver Program
The UST Catholic Schools Tuition Waiver Program was established and initiated to financially support those who have dedicated their professional lives to Catholic education. As part of this agreement, UST will provide a 50% tuition discount to full-time employees and their dependents at participating Catholic elementary or high schools in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. The University is initiating this program to affirm its commitment to Catholic education by making a UST education more available to a wider audience of the Greater Houston area.
The waiver benefit features a reciprocal contractual agreement between University of St. Thomas and each participating Catholic school.
Those applying for the waiver at UST must complete the FAFSA (fafsa.gov), noting UST’s school code: 003654.
